After eating something sweet and then drinking sweetened tea, why is it bland?
What do you mean by bland? Soothing or not highly flavored?
in creole: fade
Perhaps because your taste buds after eating sweets, sends an electric signal to your brain telling it that the sweetened tea is not sweet enough, hence you get the feeling of bland. It's like drinking alcohol, you need to drink more and more to feel its effect.
